"Sallam Prof Abiodun Musa Aibinu, Congratulations on your achievements so far and i believe there are more coming in future.. You had taught me well not only in academics but also life.. You taught me to live at my best in this very challenging world.. Not to give up and always get ready to fail.. To keep on trying with a mindset "i can do it". Not to feel weak, but strive for excellence! Thank you for always being there when i need a teacher, a mentor, a friend and a brother. May Allah returns all your great deeds with a successful life now and hereafter."


"Prof. Aibinu Musa.
This is a Professor I am proud to say taught me in school. One of the things he told me was, " Never you say it is not possible" since that day my orientation changed. I started working with that mindset that there is nothing impossible. This has really helped me. I always say thank God for Prof. I learnt so much from him. He also taught me discipline and contentment. I celebrate you Sir. God bless you Sir, God bless your Family Sir, God bless Intelligence Mechatronics Plus (IMP), God Bless Futminna. Thanks sir for been there. I celebrate you Sir."

"Prof. Musa Aibinu is a wonderful brother and friend. His academic prowess within a short eventful years is not surprising to me. From day one, I knew Musa will make it because of his doggedness, sincerity, commitment, dedication, humility and creative mind. He is very religious and loves to give back to the humanity. I pray Allah (SWT) to continue to assist him and grant his heart desires. Sky, Insha Allah, is the beginning of his success. Congratulations my brother and Baraka lahu fiihi.

You have actually made me to see impossibility as nothing and have implanted in me a high self esteem, shaping my thoughts and belief. Oga, you re-ignited my interest in IT and I shall forever remain grateful to you for all your help and support towards my career. At this juncture, let me kowtow to somebody I am very proud to call a teacher, a boss, and most importantly a father. I wish you more success in life. Barakallahu feeh."

"I had met the value attached to your name before I met you in person sir, and when I met you, I had no idea you were because of how accommodating the atmosphere was. I could sense excellence in every comment that was made and then I asked, who is he? As fate will have it, I became one of your masters student and one thing I took away is this: "if all you learn or know is written in a book, then you have not learnt anything yet". Every meeting with you even on the road is a lecture mind opening time. You made me see every problem have a digital solution. I remember in one of our lecture you said we should mention problems and then I jokingly said spiritual problems too?... and now am anxious to know the possibilities available in spiritual intelligence. if you have your way, you will give an inaugural lecture every now and then. May God prosper your ways and grant you more global recognition."

... Josephine Abogun

"It started when we were at Faculty of Technology, Obafemi Awolowo University as undergraduates. Your project at the Departmental Exhibition was the cynosure of many including myself. I said to myself, "This Brother will do better given the opportunity." And here you are today. You do not believe in impossibilities. I am proud of you and your family. May Allah continue to strengthen you and preserve you all on the Path of righteousness. I am waiting to the see the nexus between artificial and spiritual intelligence. Baarakallaahu fiihi. Congratulations on the achievement of this feat."

"As salaam alayk may Dear Musa Aibinu.
Just this afternoon at Solaat Suhur I came across Hajia Osunleke and requested from her the whereabout of her husband, Dr Shuaib Osunleke. Her response was "he is on his way to Abuja en-route Mina to attend your Inaugural Lecture". I exclaimed! that I was not aware of this. I asked her when it will come up and her response was "Tomorrow". At this it became clear to me I would not be able to attend. I felt some pain in my marrow but I could not help myself with any form of ANALGESIC to provide soothing effect. I have myself to blame for this long silence over years. I remember the last time I actually engaged you was when you were in ?Sweden and after that our usual discussion went into coma! I am good with what Allah has enable you to achieve. "Spiritual Intelligence: Beyond Mechatronic Engineering......." I pray Allah to be sufficient for you as Mawla and Helper. Mabrook; Congratulations. Prof Abubakr Abefe Sanusi Imam OAU, Ile-Ife"

"Dear Prof. Aibinu, We met first at IIUM Malaysia where a number of us drank from the fountain of knowledge and virtues and shared the vision of an institution that produced world leaders in all field of human endeavour. No doubt, you have paid your dues and made your alma mata and the ummah proud by contributing your remarkable quota in the upliftment of our society. You have proved to the whole world that inteligence, brillance and smartness is not a prerogative of any race,tribe, colour, nation or religion and that the best of qualitities is the one that is beneficial to the humanity.
I have no doubt that your inaugural lecture would be another pack of service to humanity and pray Allah to guide you through it deliery.

"Having you as my project supervisor was one of my best experiences in FUT, Minna. I can remember when I saw your name as my project supervisor, I was scared because I knew I had to work very hard. You are the most inspiring lecturer and the fact the you believe that "everything you set your mind to do is possible" is just awesome. I can remember when I had to wait for you after series of meetings so you could read my Chapter 1, you just laughed and told be calm down, that it will be fine. Though I didn't believe you then, it really turned out fine. You are an amazing mentor, very hardworking and extremely jovial personality. Congratulations Sir and you deserve it and many more!!!!"

... Aule Maureen Ngodoo

With little or nothing we know you still very much believe in us, you trust us, you always work towards ensuring that we grow, you take us to those levels that are higher than us, you give higher responsibilities to us because you believe we can, you partner with us on small and big projects because you see potentials in us.

"Thank you for sharing the good news and I hope it's not too late to congratulate Dr. Musa for his well earned achievement. I had the honour of knowing him during my undergraduate years at IIUM, Malaysia. He is one the most positive person I have ever met. He was a great mentor and like a true brother to many of us. I still remember how he motivated my friend and me to keep trying when our robotic projects didn't work as we had expected. "There is always a way out sister!" is what he used to say. He has always been very supportive and guided us to be a better person throughout our student lives and beyond. I have learnt so much from him and wish him all the best in his future endeavours."


"Professor Musa is an extraordinary human being that has an unbelievable disregard for impossibilities. He is a mentor, a father, a guardian and most impressively, a hands-on teacher. On several occasions I have witnessed him put on an overall and join in on the job, whether it was fixing hug mechanical equipment’s for the Nigerian Military, climbing buildings to inspect or fix cables and wiring or simply showing a student how to properly solder components to a board. He never just directs, he leads. Over the past couple of years, I have progressed in my person life and career under his mentorship as have so many people within and outside the shores of this country. His dedication and resolve in creating a positive change in the advancement of science and technology through his research and mentorship has made him a blessing to all."
